Chef George Mendes

At Veranda, Chef George Mendes, most recently of Michelin-starred Aldea, has curated a menu that is recognizably American, with hints of India, Mexico, South America, the Middle East, and his own ancestral Portugal. Chef Mendes purposefully supports the bounty of local farmers, butchers, and fishermen while also celebrating global flavors within the context of our American cuisine.
